Kohli operates at 200%, inspires teammates to do same: KL Rahul

Rahul reckoned that Kohli "operates at 200" percent and has the unbelievable ability to inspire his teammates to do the same

KL Rahul made on the last Test of MS Dhoni and since then, has prospered under the leadership of Virat Kohli. With the current Indian skipper, he has played at both the Indian team and at Royal Challengers Bangalore, allowing him to pick a piece of the inimitable Delhite and his incredible work ethic. As India prepare for the long series against England, which would kick start the second World Test Championship title, Rahul reckoned that Kohli "operates at 200" percent and has the unbelievable ability to inspire his teammates to do the same.

"Playing with and under Virat Kohli, he is a different sort of captain. He is a very passionate individual. He operates at 200 (per cent). 100 is the best you possibly can be at, but he operates at 200 (per cent)," Rahul said in a video for Forbes India

"He has the unbelievable ability to carry the other 10 guys and pull them from 100 to 200 (per cent)."

There were criticisms of Kohli's captaincy following India's defeat to New Zealand in the WTC final as he still has not been able to lift an ICC trophy. Under Kohli, India failed to win the 2017 Champions Trophy and the 2019 World Cup. India will next play a five-match Test series against hosts England starting on August 4.
